The event, held at The Sands in Sandton, was attended by various local celebrities such as TsepoMasilela, Maps Maponyane, TamerinJardine,NkululekoTshirumbula, DJ Milkshake and Leandie du Randt to name a few. MC’ed by Sureshnie Rider and with speeches by Aspasia Karras (editor of Marie Claire), Casey Rossouw (marketing manager of 1st for Women Insurance) and Mike Rowley (co-founder of Blow the Whistle), the event helped raise awareness about Blow the Whistle and encouraged people to stand up and join in the fight against women and child abuse.

At the launch, guests wrote their own personal message speaking out against sexual violence and were photographed holding this message. These images were then uploaded to the Marie Claire SA ‘Share your voice’ album on Facebook. If this album gets 1000 shares, 1st for Women Insurance will donate R10 000 to Blow the Whistle.
